What little things can thrill me! Only one person saved my cake (a lion cake), but I am still tickeled pink to be in the most saved today group. Those cakes always totally amaze me! icon_biggrin.gif Most importantly, my ds loved his cake and that means more than anything in the end.

Welcome to the club!! That happened to me about a year ago I think. I was so happy! I was telling everyone! Until then I think the most saves I had gotten before was 12, and then I posted the blue daisy cake in my pics and like 124 people saved it. I just couldn't believe it. Totally made my week!

Congratulations! You deserve it!! thumbs_up.gificon_rolleyes.gif

I think it's great that you're so excited about that. I made it as the most saved cake about a year ago with my coca cola bear cupcakes and then last week I made it to the top 5 or so with my candle cake. I was thrilled both times. The cakes on this site are increadible and it was such an honor both times! Most of what I do I am self taught and I know I still have a long way to go. I practice various techniques but not the same technique over and over so there are usually many flaws. I was telling everyone, too!

Great job and congratulations!

icon_biggrin.gif Thanks for the responses. Some of your cakes that you mentioned I remember! It was a really good feeling and I will be smiling about it for a couple of days...or at least until my next cake disaster!

Nah, your a cake groupie like the rest of us! The first time I got on there I did the same thing! When I got asked to be in American Cake Decorating Magazine and CC Magazine I bawled like a big baby!! When I went to a cake show I was in awe of the cakes and saw the famous bakers and got all giddy like a little girl. I think if I had an autograph book I probably would of went up to them like Goofy and said "Gash! Can you sign my autograph book," (with a goofy laugh, dont know how to type that out!!) So if your a dork call me Super Dork!!! lol

Ha ha since I am just a hobbyist... I was beyond giddy with excitement to get "most saved" and to the very first spot on the home page and my DH was just as excited for me, lol... A total thrill. So I am a proud member of "Dorks Anonymous"

Ok, I gotta a new dork thing that made me happy today. I was googling Confetti Cakes to get Elisa Strauss's email and I clicked on a link. This one to be exact:
And what did I see on the top row of the links??? MY CAKE!!! OMG! Its my pink cake that I did that was like one that Elisa did on her site and posted on here. So ultra super dork moment!!! I get all giddy over a link!!! Big SD on my forehead!!!

Congratulations! I know how you feel. It happened to me about a year ago with my rainbow butterfly cake and I didn't even know about it. I had no access to a computer for a couple of weeks and it wasn't till after the fact that a cc friend mentioned it to me. So my "moment of glory" was long past. It certainly felt good, belatedly.
And no one needs to feel like a dork. It is wonderful to have your hard work recognized by your peers.
